John Walton Dies

John Walton, Wal-Mart heir, died yesterday after crashing his ultralight near Jackson Hole, WY. Seriously, if you're worth $20 billion, what are you doing flying around in that piece of clap-trap. Damn, to be that wealthy, and you die like a schmuck flying around in a glorified kite.

Actually, from what I understand, John Walton was not despicable like the rest of the clan. He served admirally in Vietnam, earning a Silver Star, and was very philanthropic.

Are you capable of listing even three ways that the "rest of the clan" is "despicable" that does not involve making money?

(despicable = deserving of contempt or scorn; vile)

just in case you didn't know and the only use of the word you were familiar with was Daffy Duck...

I don't have scorn for them or anyone else for making money, I quite enjoy making it myself, but are you fucking joking? How about encouraging (demanding) suppliers move production over seas, illegal labor practices, and possible violations of anti-trust laws? By the way, your federal tax dollars subsidize their profit margin.
